Pair of Antique Rosewood Upholstered Armchairs
Fabulous pair of antique fully upholstered armchairs with rosewood legs that have applied gilt bronze mounts. They are wonderful quality & still have the original crisp horse hair beneath the fabric, which must have been redone quite recently judging from the good condition. These are also very comfortable armchairs with generous proportions & a great all round shape. They look to me early Victorian or William IV period & I think they are English or possibly French. Please enlarge all the images. You will notice that there is a bit of ormolu missing in a couple of places on the back legs & there is a very small piece of wood missing on the edge of one of the back legs which is hardly noticeable. These chairs have come straight out of a London residence & we haven’t done anything to them, because they are structurally sound. It might be a little bit hard to have the missing ormolu replaced, although anything can be done for a price. Personally, I would leave the back mounts alone. Or, they could just be taken off the back legs, so no-one will be any the wiser. Many chairs like these don’t even have mounts on the back legs. I would date them to around the 1830-40’s.
